, who is covering the injured
at right-back, is eager to see the defending English champions deliver a satisfying performance against Seagulls on Sunday, after their rare setback in the Champions League.
‘With a team like us, we're fighting to win trophies and to do the best we can. At the moment, I'd say we're one of the best teams in the world, so to make sure we bounce back and get the result that we want is a massive part of this team.”
The Wales international told Liverpool’s official website.
“With the lads we have around us and the staff and everyone around us, I think it is possible to bounce back in the way we want to. We can prove to people that we can bounce back and get the win.”
Williams continued in agreement with
’s comments about the crowded fixtures:
“We're playing two games a week, so it's literally: play, recover, play, recover. You don't really have time to dwell on the games that you lose.
“I think the main focus now is to put the [Atalanta] game to the side, put it to bed and focus on the next game. I think that's what has been the main part of our success in recent years is putting the bad games away to bed and focusing on the next game, doing what we do and getting the wins.”
With Brighton hoping that
can shake off a knock in time to face his former club, Williams is eager to reunite with his former teammate:
“For me, I'd say he's one of the best trainers I've ever trained with and played with. He's a top athlete and when we used to do training, in my opinion, he was the best trainer every single day.
“They're a top side and I'm sure whoever they put in, they're going to have good players. We'll do our best to try to get the win and we'll play our football.”
